Pictures and Personal catch-up

Want to see what my girls were up to yesterday?

See on my new blog:

Want some simple tips to make your photos better?

See on my new blog:

Want to . . .  just kidding.  :-)  Here are some personal updates, though.

After 3 days of Vacation Bible School, we are tired and easing into the home stretch.  It's been a wonderful year with 175 campers, 60ish teen counselors, and lots of moms working off their rears.  It's been a blessing to many and we thankful for the smooth scheduling and safety of the children.

I'm keeping more than busy with photo shoots.  Alex is keeping more than busy with funerals, births, preaching, VBS, and a new rector who will be called shortly.  Eloise is keeping busy with her VBS friends, sprinkler play, and Delia is the queen of the nursery this week.

We're tired, and I'm busy, and I'm going to watch some Yo Gabba Gabba with Eloise.

Emily Large Photography is on Facebook now.

I want you to want me.  
I need you to need me.  
I'd love you to love me.  
I'm beggin' you to beg me.

Is that tune stuck in your head now?  Oops.  Sorry!

Happy Belated Alex

I'm weeks late in saying Happy Birthday to my sweet husband.  All your ladies love you!

We didn't celebrate much, but we did have a fantastic night tonight.  We went to the Mumford and Sons concert, loved the energy and music, and made it home in time to watch the final minutes of the Mavericks win.  Completely awesome.

Vacation Bible School is coming up--175 children with us all week at church.  Our whole family will be involved.  Pray that it's a blessing to all who come and participate.

We have a new purple sprinkler and a big box of popsicles and that is what we do most of the time these days.  Cordelia calls Eloise "Wee-Weese" and it's adorable.  Eloise even will call herself "Wee-Weese" from time to time.  Cordelia calls herself "Ya."  It melts me.

I'm switching my blog time to now.  I just don't have enough time for both these days, as you can tell.  This post is completely disjointed, but isn't that photo great?  Happy Birthday Alex.  We all love you!

My other blog

That's right, friends, I now have another blog.  A less wordy and less personal blog, a more photo-rific blog (technically "blogsite").

Here she is:

Check it out.  It's been taking a lot of my time and energy but is turning out to be fantastically fruitful.  I'm in "summer business" mode and am quickly becoming accustom to shooting sessions, editing, and mailing off my images.  I'm still shooting for lots of friends but have also started meeting and shooting for new friends, references.  Did you know that a large percentage of business success comes from references?  People, friendships, relationships are what drive most consumer choices.

Speaking of that, my friend Stacy helped me tremendously with design.  Check out her creative card business at  She's an awesome woman with great vision in the DFW area.

I'd love for you to check it out, check me out on Facebook, and spread the news if you want.

Like I said before, I hope to keep the Large Story up and running with family news and photos but for the time being, it'll be playing second fiddle to my newest venture.

Thanks, y'all, for being such wonderful blog friends to me!
